He used to coach against the UConn Huskies when he was at rival Syracuse University as the head coach.

Now, Paul Pasqualoni will be heading back to the Big East Conference as head coach at Connecticut.

He replaces long-time head coach Randy Edsall left to head the Maryland Terrapins football program.

Pasqualoni had been the Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator. He compiled a  107-59-1 record in 14 years at Syracuse before being fired after the 2004 season.

Maryland chooses UConn’s Edsall to lead program

The Maryland Terrapins have chosen Randy Edsall as its new football coach.

Edsall rebuilt the Connecticut program and Maryland is hoping he can do the same magic.

Edsall was selected to replace Maryland grad Ralph Friedgen, who was fired after a 10-year run.

The 52-year-old Edsall, came out of nowhere to become a candidate because no school thought they could pry him from the UConn program because he recently signed a contract extension. Media reports said that he beat out former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach, who was favored by most Maryland fans, media and alumni.

Edsall led the Connecticut for 12 years. He guided the Huskies out of Division I-AA (now FBS) and into the Big East Conference, where he won a pair of conference titles and earned bowl appearances in each of the past four years.

Connecticut recently lost in the Fiesta Bowl to Oklahoma, 48-20 Saturday night.

You knew sooner or later the law of averages would catch up with the Connecticut women’s team and a loss would becoming up soon. People kept saying that Baylor and Ohio State could do it, but they failed.

Stanford was more than capable of defeating UConn and they did!

Number 1 Connecticut’s 90-game winning streak is over.

The Stanford Cardinal under long-time head coach Tara Vanderveer led all the way and won 71-59, ending a remarkable feat that drew national and international attention for women’s basketball.

Ironically, Stanford was the last school to beat the Huskies, in the 2008 NCAA Tournament semifinal.

Jeannette Pohlen hit five three-pointers on the way to a career-high 31 points, and the 9th-rated Cardinal (9-2) once-again beat the Huskies. Stanford won its 52nd straight at Maples Pavilion in a rematch of last season’s NCAA title game won 53-47 by two-time defending national champion UConn.

Last week, Connecticut (12-1) toppled the 88-game winning streak set by the UCLA men’s team under John Wooden from 1971-74 by beating #22 Florida State 93-62, then won their 90th in a row this week at the University of Pacific in Stockton, California.
